As expected – there was a gain – 0.9. I basically gained what I lost last week. Oddly enough I’m ok with it. It was smaller than I expected too! What I’m most happy about is that I’m back on track. That crazy feeding frenzy I was on came to a halt yesterday. I’m back in control and it feels good!
Tonight we’re skipping our usual Pizza night & having Dream Dinner Mexican Meatballs – I’ve got to point them out, but I suspect it won’t be as bad as my pizza blow up last week. But – never fail – pizza will be back in tomorrow! 😀 Can’t skip my pizza! Since it’s no meat Friday tomorrow I figured it would be a good day – PLUS it’s a gym day tomorrow morning, so hopefully I’ll be riding off of that high & not eating too much.
I was excited last night to see a box on my doorstep! My order of PB2 came. I’m obsessed with this stuff – both the plain & chocolate. I probably eat at least 2 servings a day if not more. I usually buy it from a local “Diet Shop” in town, but it runs close to $6 a jar, which the way I go through it is insane, so I made the decision to buy it in bulk from Bell Plantation. Thanks to the WW message boards I got a nice coupon code which saved me a lot!
Last night I actually put some chocolate PB2 in my banana smoothie and WOW – talk about DELICIOUS! A must try if you’ve never had it before!
My other addiction has always been CHEESE! I think I was a mouse in a previous life. It’s so bad that when we head upstate we take a day to go to Vermont to one of our favorite places – The Cheese House. The owners, Rich & Jody Serraro are not only the nicest people you’ve ever met, but they have the most AMAZING cheese!
Anyway, back to my product rave… I frequent a local family website, particularly the diet & fitness board they have. Always filled with great tips & ideas to stay on track. Well one day someone mentioned their favorite Trader Joe finds – Mini Brie Bites! Heaven in a little package! They’re only 2 pp each. For something like cheese I need portion controlled pieces. If you put me down with a block of cheddar or a wheel of brie it will disappear….along with your fingers if you try taking it away from me. 😮 As you can see in this picture it’s creamy too!
One of my favorite blogs that I subscribe to is My Bizzy Kitchen. She recently ran a contest to win an autographed copy of Rocco DiSpirito’s new book – Now Eat This Diet. Biz was asking readers to share what motivates them to lose weight. As you know hands down for me it’s my family. My past & present family. Well, I was one of the winners! I’m so excited that I was chosen & can’t wait to try out some of the recipes – and of course blog about it! That day Biz posted a mushroom lasagna – two of my favorite things!
